FORMEX REEF GMT Comes With Chronometer Movement

FORMEX REEF GMT Comes With Chronometer Movement

The REEF collection was created by FORMEX with the belief that high-performance tools can also be elegant.

The FORMEX REEF GMT Automatic Chronometer 300M allows you to simultaneously track three different time zones, expanding upon this highly versatile concept to create the perfect go-anywhere, do-anything travel watch that is built to explore.

The 42mm stainless steel watch is powered by a self-winding COSC-certified SW330-2 GMT movement. This movement is Sellita’s highest quality grade, using top components found only in Chronometer-grade movements. It is visible through a sapphire crystal display case back and is beautifully decorated, automatically charging with a custom made skeleton rotor. 

The movement was chosen as it allowed the REEF GMT to have a diameter of just 11.4mm thick and a perceived height of 9.4mm. Each movement is certified by the COSC (the official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute) and undergoes the meticulous 15-day rate test to ensure extraordinary levels of mechanical accuracy and precision. Each certified chronometer is unique, identified by a number engraved on its movement and a certificate number issued by the COSC. 

The stainless steel case with its incredibly detailed finish on the ceramic bezel is perfectly rounded off with hand-finished mirror-polished bevels. The sunray finished dial is manufactured at Formex’s in-house dial manufacture in the Jura mountains. The gradient for the different colours is sprayed by hand. The REEF GMT’s bold hour markers are also hand-applied and triangle shaped, pointing towards the broad hour and minute hands that share the same detailed beveled mirror polish and brushed top surface finishing.

Hands and hour markers as well as the bezel’s zero marker are deep-filled with Swiss Super-LumiNova® BGW9 that emits a long-lasting blue glow in dark conditions. Being able to read the time with absolute certainty is a matter of survival when diving.

All REEF GMT watches now come with a one-of-a-kind bezel mounting system that allows to pull out the bezel from the case by hand and exchange it with another colour. There is also the watch customiser that enables you to select your favourite dial, bezel and strap combination.
